Chile mirasol vs guajillo; Is the guajillo chili the same as the dried mirasol? Here is everything you will need to know about this pepper and the fresh and dried parts.

Guajillo chilli pepper has been around for a while and people do mistake it for the Dried Mirasol and they often times ask Is the guajillo chili the same as the dried mirasol and Today I am looking to answer this question in the best way I possibly can.

So to get started with this question let us first of all ask…

Chile mirasol vs guajillo; Is the guajillo chili the same as the dried mirasol?

YES, the guajillo chili is the same as the dried mirasol. It is by far one of the most popular chiles grown in Mexico, with a raisin-like wrinkled texture, and the 2nd most popular dried chile.

The Guajillo pepper has sweet, fruity tones, and then it hits you with a savory heat of 2,000 to 5,000 Scoville units.

Now there are many other questions about this pepper that you might be asking and I will be answering them below…

Are Mirasol and guajillo the same? (Chile mirasol vs guajillo)

Yes the two peppers are the same it depends what state they are in and what name you decided to give them. When in soft phase it is the guajillo chili but when it is dried it is called the dried mirasol.

Is Aji Mirasol the same as aji amarillo?

Yes they are the same and the scenarios are seemingly what happens above. When an ají amarillo is dried, it becomes ají mirasol. Drying the Aji Amarillo mainly for preservation, but it also concentrates the flavors of the aji, resulting in a deeper taste. Cooking the aji mirasol releases the flavor of the dried aji into the food
